OKLAHOMA CITY -- An Oklahoma lawmaker says his crusade against energy drink Cocaine isn't over.

State Rep. Mike Shelton, D-Oklahoma City, says the drink glamorizes illegal drugs. He bought an entire store's inventory when he overheard two young boys bragging about it.

Shelton says his proposed ban on the beverage was tabled on a technicality. He says the bill has bipartisan support and he expects it to become law in the coming weeks.
